Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer age group

throat

Avatar n tn A few days ago i was diagnosed with a mucocele and since them i have been thinking about all sorts of cancer. I am 21 years of age, non-smoker, non-drinker and athletic. I feel like i am having difficulty swallowing, but i have no problems at all downing any food or drink i want. I cannot stop thinking about throat cancer... though almost 20 hrs ago i had no premonition of any physical swallowing difficulty: this seems irrational even to me.
Avatar m tn The incidence among age 40 to 44 would be about 7 in 100,000. For the age group of 70 to 74 it is 900 in 100,000.
Avatar f tn Its for age group but anybody can post where ever they feel comfortable posting
Avatar f tn Yes it is. But I don't think its a big deal if you post in a forum that's not for your age group. Were all in the same boat and are all here for each other.
Avatar n tn ive heard that oral hpv can be acquired through oral sex, and this greatly increases the chance of throat cancer. now i dont really think theres much reason to be worried but the fact that i could potentially have oral hpv and that i smoked (i just quit recently) i'm kind of letting my imagination run wild here. i dont really have any of the symptoms except i do get a sore throat once in a while, and it doesnt accompany any other kind of sickness.

394052 tn?1203100849 My family has a strong history of cancer. Grandmother with breast cancer at 94, mother with colon cancer at age 73, uncle lung cancer, uncle stomach cancer, aunt with colon cancer, great aunt leukemia. These are all on maternal side. Brother now with prostate cancer at age 55 and me with stage 1b clear cell ovarian cancer at age 55 (no sign of disease now). I realize with older people and cancer, the docs have always told me, well they were just old enough.
Avatar n tn The symptoms described could be due to an infection, most probably streptococcal or a viral infection. The commonest pathogen (agent) causing throat infections is a group A Streptococcus bacteria. Besides this Group B Streptococcus, mycoplasma, neisseria and cornybacterium are known to cause throat infections. Other known pathogens causing infections of the throat are viral and yeast (candida). To begin with a throat swab is taken to see for streptococcus.

Avatar m tn Hi, i am also an 18 year old male and i have a lump on my left breast between my nipple and armpit...although there was no pain, there was a slight discomfort. the lump is totally moveable. I was at the doctors getting a check up on my throat and i mentioned it to my doctor. he checked it out and told me that it was a something on my tissue(cant remember the name), and because it was moveable, i had nothing to worry about - especially at my age.
Avatar f tn Suggest you visit an ear, nose, and throat specialist (OTOLARYNGOLOGIST) to get a proper opinion. Cancer is highly unlikely.
Avatar n tn The most important patient factor is age, although gender is also important. The most important characteristics of the cancer are size, type, extent of local invasion, and distant metastasis, although the number of tumors in the thyroid gland also influences the patient’s prognosis. For example, the risk of a thirty-five-year-old woman dying from a papillary cancer smaller than 1.0 centimeter (occult thyroid cancer, or microcarcinoma) is very low.
Avatar n tn How long does it take for cancer to usually appear? I have read on google searches that throat cancer can attack anyone at any age? I have been off cigarettes for a while now, almost two months.
Avatar f tn I had a tubal after my second daughter was born and had breast cancer at age 43. I went through menapause after the cancer but I still have my ovaries. Are my risk of ovarian cancer high. I go for a CT scan this week for them to check my left side. Does your chances increase after menapause when there is no hormones in your body?
Avatar m tn So I guess my question is what is the chance of someone my age given this situation to actually have developed Larynx Cancer? Have you ever seen or heard of it happening to someone of my age? Also what about the Barretts Esophogus?
Avatar f tn Also, capsular invasion of chest muscle. With this diagnosis, if age 45 or older, the cancer would be stage IV; younger that 45, stage II. Is it just me, or does it seem insane that age alone can change the prognosis of my disease, especially with the metastasis (also, my tumors were large - some more than 3cm)? For the curious, I'm 37. If I were 30, then the age thing would make me fell more optimistic, but at 37, that 45 year age cut-off isn't very reassuring.
Avatar m tn My brother has had throat cancer 15 months ago. However due to the extensive radiation treatments he had he now is having problems with his jaws. Shortly after the throat cancer he developed lung cancer and is being treated with chemo by an oncologist. His teeth are bothering him for the last 3 months and his teeth are falling out as well as pieces of his jaw coming off into his mouth. He is in a lot of pain despite the medications he is on.
Avatar f tn I am 39 and smoked in the past approx 1pk/day from age 15-31. My father also passed away from lung cancer at age 68. To complicate matters more is that I have an anxiety disorder and I am 8 months pregnant. can someone please help.
Avatar n tn Dear Ken59, I posted an answer to this question - but specifically to your question about the early 1980s, I don't believe that the median or overall survival for this age group have changed significantly in the last couple decades. My posted answer to your previously posted question: " The question for median survival for any cancer is not as straightforward to answer as one would expect.
